Increasing demand for transportation of pharmaceutical medicines, vaccines, drugs and clinical trial distribution products, tissue, donor organs and blood transfers around the globe.
Increasing demand for transportation of pharmaceutical medicines, vaccines, drugs and clinical trial distribution products, tissue, donor organs and blood transfers around the globe
The increasing need and demand for the transportation of medicines, drugs, clinical trial distribution products, tissue, vaccines, donor organs and blood transfers around the globe drive the temperature-controlled packaging market. Additionally, rising pharmaceutical spending globally due to the increasing prevalence of infectious and chronic ailments boosts the temperature-controlled packaging market.
For instance, according to the International Air Transport Organization (IATA), the air cargo share of global pharmacy transport decreased from 17 percent in 2000 to 11 percent in 2013. And in comparison with ocean shipping, In 2018, about 0.5 million tonnes of pharmaceutical goods were flown, whereas approximately 3.5 million tonnes were shipped by ocean.
One of the main reasons for the preference for ocean transportation is the issue of temperature excursions because air freight has far more temperature excursions than road or ocean freight. If time is not a significant factor, ocean freight is the safer alternative for temperature-sensitive pharmaceuticals in cold chain logistics. The growing need for the pharmaceutical industry's cold chain and temperature-controlled facilities is helping the market grow.
Other than that, in terms of value, cold chain logistics are estimated to have over 26 percent of the pharmaceutical industry in 2019. That share has also increased exponentially during the COVID-19 situation. That share is expected to increase because there is increasing demand and needs for temperature-controlled products with the emergence of many advanced therapies derived from human cells.
Lack of appropriate infrastructure and environmental conditions are restraining the market
The products that are temperature sensitive may be subjected to a decrease in quality during the transportation process, so utmost care is needed, which also depends on the degree of infrastructure availability and the surrounding environment.
For instance, the cold chain system is assumed to be at high risk, mainly in tropical countries where a power supply is unpredictable and facilities for its maintenance are not well developed compared to developed countries which may hinder market expansion.
In tropical areas, it is common to see 30 to 50 percent of refrigerators and freezers being out of order. In developed countries also, the problem is critical. For example, in U.S., there is a lack of refrigerator temperatures that fall within the satisfactory range, which is 63 percent below the minimum.
Some of the general weakness of Cold chain management that also hinders the growth of temperature-controlled packaging that are frequently observed throughout transportation and storage are delays during transportation, quality of refrigerators, a method of storage, too long storage at the health facilities, inappropriate use of refrigerators, power disruption, equipment breakage and deficiency of human resources proficient in managing the cold chain.
Due to the lack of appropriate infrastructure and environmental constraints, the cold chain remains a highly susceptible point for national immunization and drug distribution programs in developing countries, mainly those with tropical climates.
For instance, in Ethiopia, there is a real difficulty in vaccines losing their effectiveness during cold storage at these centers.
The spread of COVID-19 has had a positive impact on the global temperature controlled packaging market, with demand surging from the medical and food industries
The Healthcare industry has evolved as the largest gainer from COVID-19 through increased sales of drugs, medical consumables and equipment for diagnostics and treatment of the disease. The sales of several drugs, including antivirals such as Remdesivir and Favipiravir, have witnessed an unprecedented spike owing to their efficacy in treating COVID-19 patients. It has led to production surges, shipment and distribution activities of these drugs globally, increasing the demand for temperature-controlled packaging services
The market has also turned positive with the increased cost of shipping and freight services, leading to high sales revenue and profit margins for cold-chain providers
Also, the pandemic highlighted the need for effective healthcare systems in countries worldwide, thereby augmenting the market growth over the forecast period. Governments and healthcare organizations are likely to increase spending on developing adequate healthcare infrastructure, including medicine production, storage and distribution networks; this will drive investments in the temperature-controlled packaging market and will propel the market growth
The penetration of temperature-controlled packaging will likely reach new avenues in the food and beverage industry post-pandemic owing to increasing awareness of food safety and quality. The market is likely to witness robust growth from supermarkets and hypermarkets, storage warehouses and export solutions, particularly in categories such as dairy, meat and seafood
The global temperature controlled packaging market is segmented by type, product, application, end-user and region.
Passive temperature controlled packaging systems are cost-effective and are widely preferred for shipments with a low-risk profile
Based on product, the global temperature controlled packaging market is segmented into active and passive systems. The passive system holds a major share in temperature controlled packaging market. Passive temperature controlled packaging systems look like conventional outer packaging for the products; however, they internally consist of insulation materials and thermal media, which act in concert to resist changes in product temperature driven by adverse external temperatures.
These systems require the packaging of products in controlled conditions and the system can be packed and sealed before dispatch. Once sealed, passive systems require no further temperature-specific handling until they reach their destination. Passive temperature controlled packaging systems is widely preferred for shipments with a low-risk profile. These are cost-effective packaging solutions as compared to active systems.
These systems hold a major market share in 2019, with around 64% of the global temperature-controlled packaging market and are expected to dominate during the forecast period owing to lower cost and continuous product developments.
